Took it wheelinn Sat......and the transmission blew Luckly reverse still worked so I was able to back it up on the trailer. May have located a new tranny, have neighbors who race cars and have a few and he wants some wheels I have so may try to work out a trade.

Getting winched out of the pit
Back home and where it's going to sit until time to fix
Picked up a new to me TH350 and NP205 today. After I got them home I found an issue with 4 low. Not a big deal, however this case doesn't have the slip yoke setup like my current one so I will tear it down to see if it is a easy fix or not. Looks like I'll be keeping the Jeep a little longer. My wife wasn't crazy about me cutting up the LJ until it is paid off, so I'll be impatiently waiting till that day comes. Up next is getting the carb tuned and start 4 linking the rear.
I'm now under the impression this jeep isn't getting painted which isn't all bad.
You would be correct. Unfortunately I have decided to sell the jeep and move on to another project
I appreciate all the compliments throughout the build! Sometimes I think I enjoy building them more that wheeling them. Some of the parts will live on in my new Cherokee project, heres the link if you want to check it out http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/1-ton-xj-1225733/
Thanks to my dad, my son has been wanting to go muddin after watching videos on youtube with him. I know, I know..mud sucks...but what makes my wheelin partner happy makes me happy, so I'm going to build a new crawler that will be able to get dirty. Don't get me wrong, I'm not afraid to get dirty, but I'm over the whole playin in the mud thing and don't want to drive home covered in it. Orginally I was going to just buy a full top and keep the scrambler, but a new top for it was a little over a grand and adding a/c for the hot Florida summers would be about another grand. Started looking on craigslist and found this Cherokee that runs, drives and even the A/C works and picked it up for $675.
